    Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    I've decided to sort out and finish the Middle Levels for my next update and looking at old OS maps there are a few different names compared to today.

    Are Monks Lode and Great Ravelley Drain navigable as they are shown on the attached map? NavBridges2013.pdf

    Thanks I had noticed the lock going into the relief channel but wasn't sure how far it is navigable. I've now updated the River Cam and the Cambridgeshire Lodes.

    Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    I'm trying to map all of our UK and Irish waterways that are currently navigable and also those that used to be navigable, and that includes both canal and river navigations. I've had some particularly challenging former navigations to map as there are a good number that closed before OS got started mapping.

    River Great Ouse and various tributaries updated, now doing the Cam and various Lodes.

    Survey Plans Grand Junction

    Years ago I was lucky enough to be loaned original drawings for Watford locks by BWB they were works of art, disappointing to have to give them back though.

    Droitwich Canal 1973 Big Dig

    I can't imagine H & S letting me do the things I did in the 70's & 80's on the Wey & Arun canal, I should go look at some of my pictures as I was the society photographer then.
  12. An example from Bradshaw's Regents canal from Limehouse to Paddington: 8.5 miles, 12 Locks, 80' - 14' 6" draught 4' 6"
  13. I've purchased a copy of Bradshaw's Canals and Navigable Rivers of England and Wales which gives maximum craft dimensions for each waterway listed, hopefully Mr Bradshaw is more accurate than current listings. I'll gradually update canalmaponline with these dimensions. Chris
